Welcome to Florida
The caring, board certified and fellowship trained doctors of FMI are dedicated to treating joint, muscle and bone pain anywhere it strikes. Even though we are a team of renowned surgeons, the majority of our treatments don't involve surgery. When surgery is warranted, it's good to know that we perform the latest proven procedures such as total joint replacement including the anterior approach hip, joint repair and modification, arthroscopy and many more. FMI's orthopaedic surgeons are among the few designated to perform total joint replacement surgeries at The Villages Regional Hospital. It feels good to know that you're in the qualified hands of a local doctor with local affiliations.
Whether your condition is new or chronic, FMI utilizes safe, proven treatments - never questionable trends - to help you overcome pain and get back to a healthier, happier life.
Please visit our Information Center for answers to questions about insurance, patient care and other concerns about your appointment at Florida Musculoskeletal Institute.

Dr. Chad C. Watkins
"I had my first hip replacement in 2005. I spent a week in the hospital and another week in a rehab facility. When I needed the other hip replaced, I called FMI and met with Dr. Ollivierre. He told me about anterior hip replacement and how it involves a lot less recovery time. After this hip replacement, I was home in four days and bounced back three times faster. Now I can tend to my orchid garden without a walker and without pain. I'm back 100 percent!"
